What is ‘earlobe repair?’
Earlobe repair is a procedure that corrects elongated, or torn earlobes, usually caused by heavy earrings and continuous telephone use.
How is an earlobe repair performed?
A small amount of local anesthetic placed into the lobe, and high precision instruments are used to carefully excise the skin around the discrepancy. Then a few very tiny sutures are placed to bring skin edges together, and these stay in about a week.
Can I have my ear re-pierced after this procedure?
Yes, in most cases you can. This is done about 6 to 8 weeks after the sutures are removed.
How long does the procedure take?
You will be surprised to know that it only takes about 30 minutes to repair one earlobe, and for both lobes, approximately 45 minutes are needed.
